    Ever since the latest Android update the end of December, my wifi constantly disconnects and reconnects. Is anyone else having this problem? If so, have you fixed it and if you have, please let me know how to do it.
    Device is GS3, no mods or JB.

    What about the wifi? Wireless data or general wifi?

    use push pin entry

    who is your service provider? I had Verizon and never had any problem with phone, Ruku, laptop connecting.
    when i switch over to Comcast, it's a long story.. I started having problems with Ruku first, then the cell phone. just
    my Samsung s3... what gives? anyway, If you have any phone with push capabilities, use that. it's same as when you use
    Netflix, when you type in a code to get service.
    note: Samsung s3...menu, then press WPS pin entry and put that info in the router
    another thing, you could lower your wireless security setting a little.

    I use WPS as well. Works well but every once in awhile it will still have issues connecting. Its our phones. Android it seems. Tweeking my router helped a lot. Hopefully there is a fix coming.

    Provider is Verizon. I did do some router tweaks to no avail. I tried different channels, changed security settings, stuff like that. I'll check out that link that was posted up above.

    It's strange that this never happened until the last update came out.

    pin setup

    have you tried the pin setup??? this will bind the system together.. two system hand shake each other, i had no
    problem with the phone, tablet, etc after that.
